You Fell

You fell
Without a cry, without a warning
Like a feather
From the summer sky
We did not hear the sound
But there were ripples all around
And still they spread
Mellow waves of sorrow
Ring around your head
I can picture you, but you are laid to rest
Did you know – that things were said?
Not in haste
We only saw the waste
The missing taste of freedom
All you spoke of
All you’d be, some
Day would see that heart in motion
Not a quotient
But the total
Life like falling through a porous sky
Catching kind words
Passing by
You fell
On solid ground, we gathered close
But you took flight
And softly rose
